Ruby's Wish

Ruby's Wish
by Shirin Yim Bridges
illustrated by Sophie Blackall
published by Chronicle Books



This Ezra Jack Keats' Book Award winner is so wonderful!  Published in 2002...my first year out of college...I missed reading it back then.  I am so glad to have stumbled upon it at the library!  The story brought tears to my eyes (as so many good books do!)...it is a story told simply and beautifully.  And you will love the illustrations, too!  So for all of you who are constantly searching for diversity in kidlit, look no further!  I know it isn't a recent publication, but it is one worth revisiting.



Enjoy!
